At a brothel in Kampong Thom, Pastor Sinoeun Chea, top, with the women's center and Kampuchea for Christ (KFC), tries to negotiate a price to purchase the freedom of three prostitutes, working with a ledger that Polly, the brothel owner,  uses to keep track of how much each prostitute owes.  The red smudge on the bottom of the page is a red-ink thumbprint, of one of the prostitutes.  At the end of the tense negotiations, Polly raised the price so high that KFC couldn't pay, so the women stayed at the brothel.  (Photo by ELLEN JASKOL/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)..
